It's been in x-talk since HyperCard.

BTW, the "trueword" token was introduced as part of the unicode 
implementation, so you'll only see it in LC version 7.0. When we all 
adopt that version, we will be able to choose between the "logical" word 
boundaries (trueword) and the historical boundaries (the HyperCard 
method, which also includes punctuation as part of words.)
